How To Recover From Toxic Mold Exposure

with podcast guest

Bridgit Danner

Bridgit Danner was working as an acupuncturist in Portland, Oregon when her health started to deteriorate. She learned a lot, tried a lot of things, and even graduated from a functional health coaching program in an effort to heal herself and become a better practitioner. Although several things kind of helped, nothing helped completely, and she hit rock bottom in the winter of 2014. Soon after she discovered toxic mold in her 100-yr old home and began the long journey of home and body repair.

Bridgit is a longtime friend who was forced to become an expert in toxic mold because of her own experience of getting extremely sick from mold exposure over multiple years. This conversation was eye-opening for me and I learned so much talking to Bridgit. Consider this episode Toxic Mold 101 and an in-depth preview of her new book, The Ultimate Toxic Mold Recovery Guide: Take Back Your Home, Health & Life.

Many illnesses caused by mold toxicity are often misdiagnosed as other things and the underlying mold problem often goes unchecked for the rest of the person’s life. In this episode, we talk about how and why mold can develop in our homes, symptoms of mold toxicity, Bridgit’s experience with long-term mold exposure, what you need to know about testing, and so much more!

Are you overwhelmed by all the different varieties of collagen out there? I was too until I recently found Sparkle Wellness, a family-owned business that spends extra time sourcing the purest and most thoroughly tested ingredients for their collagen products. They have developed a range primarily using the powerful benefits of collagen to improve the look and health of your skin, hair, and nails, as well as restore your joint health and build lean muscle.

I’m currently obsessed with their Muscle Boost Collagen, it’s been a complete game-changer for me. It easily mixes with water and comes in an amazing mixed berry flavor that tastes better than any other collagen powder I’ve ever tried. Try it out and add some Sparkle to your day.
